Word of warning!

Recommended Posts

Do not get taken in by the cheap courses for BSL. Some websites advertise their courses priced at ridiculously low prices e.g marked down from £149.99 to £15.00 - but do not sign up to these courses. If you read through the specification of their course(s) and do not see it as being registered with Signature or iBSL then avoid like the plague.

I got taken in by the cheap pricing on one of the websites and after starting one of the courses I was disappointed to learn that it was nothing but useless PowerPoint slides and hardly any signing at all. Valuable lesson learnt regarding pricing and a reminder - "If its too good to be true...........".

Please be wary and if in doubt ask here :)

    • Hi everyone, My name is Katie and I've just started learning BSL! My mum is a pre-school teacher so she has some knowledge of BSL and has taught me a little, but I wanted to learn some more on my own as well!
    • I would love to join this practice group as well, if you still have room for one more person. Unfortunately, I can't email you, as your email address won't become visible to me. Could you email me? My email address is [email protected]
    • When working in Diversity and Inclusion in the field of LGBTI+ people, this video might be of interest for you: Have fun learning this beautiful new language! 🙂
    • And another three ways: 1. Facial expression: use non-understanding facial expression 2. That sign, I don't understand 3. Stop, that sign, what?
    • Hi all, My name is Jochem, and I'm Dutch. I have a British friend, who really benefits from BSL. So, I started to learn British Sign Language. Being fluent in Dutch Sign Language (DSL, or NGT in Dutch) it is both easier and harder to learn BSL. Easier, because my hands, my eyes and my brain are already used to a visual language. And harder, because sometimes I mix both sign languages. I assume after some practice I will most likely end up signing BSL the way I am speaking English: you will
    • hi guys i am new here! 
    • I love languages and work in Diversity and Inclusion work for an LGBT charity, and so wanted to combine my love of languages with being inclusive, which led me to sign language. I hope that I will be able to learn to sign clearly and well and that this skill will aid me in learning how to create inclusive spaces for Deaf and signing people.
